Im considering having my seamstress shorten the pink tulle in the skirt of my dress? Im taking it to my seamstress on the 23rd and need to decide…
Do I wear a mermaid underskirt? Do I shorten the pink tulle? Help ladies!
I just feel like that layer of pink tulle looks way too long? Like it needs shortened or made into a ^ shape at least? help me bees! What do I ask my seamstress to do?

Also, There is a layer of pink tulle as the bottom layer under the lace, Im considering having that removed altogether so the white lace is the last layer that touches the floor? Advice?

I think it would depend….does the lace on the bottom layer, go all the way to the top of where the tulle is or only part way? If it goes up all the way, I’m thinking it might look better without it completely. Can you tuck it all up and take a pic? BEAUTIFUL dress though either way!

I would put a mermaid slip underneath to fill out the skirt. That could change the way the tulle sits, and may give the dress better ‘flow’. Are you wanting to adjust the shape of thr dress, or just how the tulle looks on the bottom? Talk to your seamstress and she may know just what to do!

I agree that the pink tulle layer looks too long – I’d prefer a layer of the white/ivory over top of it to mute it a little.

I think I’d definitely lose that last layer of tulle at the very bottom of the dress so that the lace is the last layer that touches the ground.
Not sure about the middle pink tulle layer though. Could you pin it up so we could see what the dress looks like without it?

Yes, lose some length (maybe 3-4 inches) and the bottom tulle. The tulle looks surprisngly heavy that long.

i’d wear a mermaid slip – it needs that puff at the bottom to balance the dress in my opinion. i think the dress is beautiful, and with a mermaid slip it will look perfect and much more finished

No advice about the dress, but hot damn! Love that color and the curves.

Could definately do without the last layer of tulle. The mid layer…i think that you should leave it. It It looks symmetrical in length to the layer of lace directly above. Could you post a pic with the tulle pinned/shortened to length that you have in mind?

Yay, I’m so excited I can finally see your dress- every time you’ve posted it before, the pictures have refused to show up for me! I was always so bummed since everybody raved about how gorgeous it was! Now I can see for myself and I agree it’s amazing!
I wouldn’t have noticed anything amiss with the tulle layer if you hadn’t pointed it out- but now that you have, I agree it seems to be an awkward length. I’d love to see what a mermaid slip does for the bottom either way!
